Mixed Media Blank Handmade Card, embossed with CHOOSE HAPPY! This mixed media card started out with a base that was an actual letter my mom received from a friend in October of 1945, while the friend was attending nursing school in Flint, Michigan. The letter is there, underneath layers of Distress Oxide Inks. (unfortunately, the words are no longer visible - but I guarantee the paper is there!). Even if the words are no longer visible, this card is still an ORIGINAL mixed media work of art; you will not receive a print. As you can see from the third picture above, the hand colored flowers are raised off the face of the card. And, I have hand signed the back of the card.

This time I chose to dig into a box of my mom's letters. I didn't get very far into the box before I decided to use this letter. My mom was raised in a small town in Upper Michigan, and was probably thrilled to hear of news from Flint, although her friend talked about a roomie who carried around a butcher knife for protection!

This card is an A2 size, 5 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches. The matching envelope is handmade, and stamped with the same flowers that are colored and affixed to the card. It's blank inside, with lots of room to write your own special message.
